Winter Youth Retreat 2022

The past two years have been difficult for everyone and Kingswood has been a place of refuge and renewal to all, therefore Kingswood is excited to announce the second-ever winter youth retreat from February 25-27, 2022. Youth no longer have to wait all year to experience Kingswood!

This weekend, youth ages 12-16 will spend their days laughing, relaxing, and connecting with one another, while spending ample time in the huge and spacious farmhouse that can sleep up to 22 people! It has a large living room centered around a wood burning stove, a dining area, as well as a beautiful kitchen. 

Over the course of the weekend, we will play group games, strengthen our relationship with God, oneself, and nature through guided reflections, and venture into the winter wonderland of Kingswood. Depending on the weather, sledding or a snow building contest may be possible. Once the sun goes down we will cozy up by the wood burning stove, and if possible have an outdoor bonfire! Oh, and of course there will be s'mores!

Do not wait until the summer to enjoy Kingswood’s beauty and God’s bountiful gifts! Hope to see you there!
